Someone documented all of Theresa May's outfits since she became Prime Minister and you really need to see it

Politics, while an undeniable necessity in the country, doesn't offer much in fashion or style.

"They're not here to look nice, they're here to run our country!" we hear exasperated voices cry. And while that is true, there's nothing to say one can't run a country and be fashionable at the same time.

That brings us to Political Style, a blog that showcases one woman's venture to combine her passion of fashion, politics and culture.

Laura-Emily Dunn, a social media and communications professional, has been documenting Theresa May's outfits since she became Prime Minister in July - focusing on public engagements and official photographs. So without further ado, let's take a look at the sartorial side of Parliament.

Wardrobe colour

Navy is by far the favourite colour of May, proving she is in fact a true Tory. Nearly half of her outfits - be it a dress, tailored suit, or smart coat - have been dark blue, while a further 5% bright blue.

Shoe statements

The PM's favourite pair of shoes seems to be a sparkly pair of flats from Russell and Bromley, a brand which has also proven to be her favourite over the past six months. May has apparently showcased their shoes 46 times since July.

Somewhat surprisingly, leopard print didn't appear to be May's favoured way to make her shoe statements - her preferred footwear design happened to be a plain fabric shoe, followed by a sparkly set and then a patent pair.

When it came to heel height, the Tory leader opted for flats almost half the time, followed by kitten heels - which is usually under two inches.

Accessories

Traditional pearls have been the favoured jewellery of choice, with May draping a string of the gems around her neck more than a third of the time. This is followed closely by a bold, statement necklace from Amanda Wakeley.

Designer preference

British designer Amanda Wakeley appeared to trump other designers by a mile, with 72% of the PM's wardrobe having been designed by her. When it comes to accessories, British designers Anya Hindmarch and Halcyon Days were favoured.

Stuart Weitzman and Kate Spade were two of May's trusted designers over the pond, with Longchamp and Escada adding some European zest to her wardrobe.
